Three of the V8 Supercar Championship’s Holden teams have today unveiled the livery schemes they will run in this year’s championship season.
Team BOC (Brad Jones Racing), Fujitsu Racing (Garry Rogers Motorsport) and the TOLL Holden Racing Team have all showcased revised livery schemes in separate launches today.
All will be running the new Holden VF Commodore body shape, with the carmaker taking the wraps off its latest sedan model – to rave reviews – over the weekend.
The championship will have its first year operating under the new ‘Car of the Future’ regulations, which aim to reduce operating costs through the use of common components.
Brad Jones Racing was the first to showcase the livery scheme it will run on Jason Bright’s #8 Team BOC entry. The car sports a tweaked colour scheme, with prominent stickering from BOC, along with minor sponsors Fuchs and Sitech.
The team’s other naming rights partners – Wilson Security and Lockwood, who will have prominent signage on the team’s two other respective cars – were also clearly visible.
It will be the fourth year of the Bright-BJR partnership, with the team hoping to return to the winner’s circle once again after a winless 2012.

Meanwhile, Garry Rogers Motorsport took the covers off the #33 and #34 Fujitsu-sponsored entries it will be running for rookie driver Scott McLaughlin, and his team-mate Alexandre Premat.
After running a chrome and red colour scheme in 2012, the veteran outfit – which celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of its founding in 2013 – has shown off a startling all-red colour scheme, with Fujitsu air conditioning enjoying pride of place on the cars’ bonnets and flanks once again.
And Holden’s lead factory team, the TOLL Holden Racing Team, took to the track to show off the new livery scheme that drivers Garth Tander and James Courtney will run in 2013.
Traditional sponsors Toll, Mobil, HSV, NGK, Continental Tyres and Coates Hire all elected to remain on board with the team, which also welcomed new sponsorship investment from the likes of Money Choice, Morris Finance, Carlisle Brakes and Scania.
